A High court presided over by a Judge identified as Justice D. E. Osiagor has called for the closure of all federal ministry registries including the Ikoyi marriage registry.

According to the Judge, it’s unconstitutional for federal ministry registries to hold or conduct marriage except for local government registries which are stated by the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Justice Osiagor also proclaimed that all marriages held in federal registries and certificates rendered to couples are invalid and useless.
